Preheat oven to 425°. Sprinkle chicken with salt and pepper.
Stir together 1/3 cup flour and next 3 ingredients.
Whisk eggs just until foamy, and stir in pressed garlic.
Place a wire rack coated with cooking spray in a 15- x 10-inch jelly-roll pan.
Dredge chicken tenders in flour mixture, shaking off excess; dip in egg mixture, and dredge in crushed tortilla chips. Lightly coat chicken on each side with cooking spray; arrange chicken on wire rack.
Bake at 425° for 18 to 20 minutes or until golden brown and done, turning once after 12 minutes. Serve with Pineapple-Kiwi Salsa, if desired.
It was good but I would warn others to be sure to thoroughly coat your wire baking rack. I thought I had applied enough oil but apparently it was not enough! The coating stuck to the wire when I turned the chicken a lot of the breading fell off then it took me forever to clean the rack! My fault for sure but just wanted to warn others.
My sons (3 and 5) would not stop eating these! YAY! I took the advice from the other reviews and doubled the spices. I used garlic powder (1/2-1 tsp) instead of fresh garlic. This was SOOOOO yummy! I enjoyed dipping it in salsa, and my hubby enjoyed adding hot sauce (as another reader commented), which made it 'buffalo' style. I will DEFINITELY make this again!! It will probably be in my recipe rotation every other week!
Great recipe!! I will definitely make it again! My 6 and 4 year olds both liked it too. :) I also doubled the seasonings in the flour and subbed cayenne pepper for the chili powder. Didn't make the pineapple salsa, just served with regular salsa. We did have pineapple on the side.
Great recipe. I doubled the seasonings and added 1/2 tsp of garlic powder to flour. Used eggbeaters and tortilla chip crumbs from 2 bags I have been saving for some recipe like this. Was crispy like real fried chicken. I used FRANK'S HOT SAUCE as a dip and they were just like Boneless Buffalo Wings. I am going to cut the chicken into smaller strips and make them for tailgating at the Oregon-Oregon State (boo) fball game on 12-3-09. Served with mushroom, green onion and buttermilk mashed potatoes and sauted spinach and garlic.
This is my family's favorite chicken recipe! I've even made it for company and they enjoyed it. It's really delicious and fairly easy to make.
I do alter the recipe a little...using multi-grain tortilla chips, and using 3 egg whites rather than 2 whole eggs. Also, I don't make the salsa to go with it, but instead serve it with either a corn pudding, or a corn and tomato salad.
